HAM is my option. Carry the YAESU FT-60 and I make lists of repeaters and respective frequencies in the areas I travel JIC. When all else fails, HAM will be the last one standing as most repeater stations have backup power sources. It's a great way to keep up with possible emergencies as it will work when cell and internet are not available. CB was great in it's day but too much "just to keep us awake at night" chatter 24/7...plus atrocious language. Most truckers are going to 10 Meter...many illegally without the proper licensing.
